Firwood B&B is a 5 Star Gold Awarded guest house which sits in an enviable, elevated position in the tranquil Northumberland countryside. This former hunting lodge overlooks the beautiful area of Glendale and lies close to the Cheviot Hills. Providing quality bed and breakfast, real fires, warm hospitality and a central location this country B&B offers delightful accommodation.
Firwood Country B&B enjoys a magnificent location, central for exploring all of Northumberland, the Scottish Borders and even Edinburgh or Newcastle, which are only 60-70 miles away. We are roughly 18 miles from the coast as the crow flies, just far enough to miss any sea frets! The treasures of Bamburgh Castle, the unspoilt beaches at Bamburgh, Seahouses, the Elizabethan town walls of Berwick-upon-Tweed, Alnwick Garden and Alnwick Castle, the Farne Islands, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Warkworth Castle, Alnmouth and Northumberland National Park are all within easy reach. If you want to cross to the Farne Isles to see the Puffins, the boats leave from Seahouses, again a lovely drive of just under 20 miles. If you are coming to walk the Northumberland hills, then again, we are well situated. Leave the car at our bed and breakfast, walk up the hill and down into the Harthope Valley - and there are the Cheviots!
Firwood B&B offers a delightful chioce of 5 Star Gold Awarded en-suite rooms to guests. The en-suite bedrooms are spacious, with original fireplaces and are named after the views, wildlife or 'house characters' and are all on ground level. They are decorated in a period style but with a modern slant and we have a selection of doubles (with king size beds, some antique- just the beds, not the mattresses!) and a twin room, again with period beds. The en-suites are a selection of bath with shower over, again, one with period suite, or shower, with a range of toiletries and fluffy towels. The rooms themselves benefit from central heating, with thermostatic valves, so you can adjust them for your comfort, televisions, hairdryers and beverage trays with a selection of tea, fruit and leaf, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits and fresh milk. Breakfast at Firwood is a relaxed affair, taken in the very spacious dining room, with original fireplace and big bay window looking out over the valley and hills with the morning sun slanting through the windows. Offering a choice of breakfast, all freshly prepared, cooked and using local ingredients where possible.
We have also been approved by VisitBritain as been committed to catering for the accommodation needs of cyclists and walkers after meeting the criteria of the Walkers and Cyclists Welcome Scheme. We are a totally no smoking establishment. Sorry, Firwood is not considered suitable for children.
